Celebration of Love

It's wonderful to end the year with a celebration of love. The hubby and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary on Christmas eve. We took a trip down south of Perth, I shall tell you a bit more of the trip in my new years' summer edition. I feel like 3 years has passed by us pretty quickly and it's taught us a lot about each other. While some say marriage isn't a bed of roses, I actually think it is. It's not a bed of Rose Petals but it certainly is a bed of roses , truly a combination of sweet smells and sharp thorns. I'm glad with time we've learnt to avoid the sharp thorns on our bed , the key ingredient in the wise words of my mum is LOVE, to remember that Love conquers it all :)

I thank God that I've been blessed with much love this past year and I hope 2008 brings a lot more of it.In my list of resolutions for 2008, I hope to exude love without expecting anything in return. I somehow know its easier said than practised but nonetheless worth a try. In the meanwhile I pray that love will resolve all of the unlovely events happening around the world. May we spread, give and receive more love in 2008. Let us know what your new year resolutions are, would love to hear them. Till then, Wishing one and all a very Happy New Year!

Hope you enjoyed the snippets from my wedding as much as I enjoyed sharing.
Much Blogging Love,

Hi Adla! Thanks for dropping by at my blog. I just love your wedding pictures. You're name isn't the only thing that reminds me of a princess from the 1001-night storybook, you just look like one too! I like your blog as well. But I'm too busy at the moment to enjoy, I'll come back in 2008! Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2008, you are the first to enjoy! Cheers! L.

Happy Anniversary Darlings...you make such a beautiful couple and you were a gorgeous bride...you're right, the roses wouldn't be roses without the thorns, and so marriage is a garden tended by love and plagued by weeds...get the weeds while they're small and not so deep rooted!!! I've spent 39 years and three months with the love of my life and haven't been tempted to kill him once! Maybe just maim him a little...but I usually see sense and put down the knife...
love to you
Sandi

Happy Anniversary!!! You two make a very beautiful couple!!!

Adla, what a beauty you are! You two look like a Prince and Princess! Seriously! Thank you for sharing your photos with us. Your aspiration to Love without the expectation of receiving love in return is really quite powerful. The world would be a different place if we were all able to be so selfless. Love comes in so many different forms from extending a smiling face to a grumpy stranger all the way to devoting our lives to someone. Sorry to get all spiritual; but I believe in passing on positive energy and try and avoid passing on negative energy. Meaning, if someone is mean or hateful, I still try my best to reach out with love and compassion, doing my part to end the negative cycle. Happy New Year Adla!

Oh Adla....what gorgeous wedding photos. You are beautiful and a dead ringer for the girl on Desperate Housewives. Oh....if I could only think of her name...Eva something.
I think people who learn to give love and other good things without expectations live the happiest and most fulfilling lives. You're on the right track sweetie.

Sher said...

Omigosh, how absolutely stunning you are! When I first stumbled upon your blog and saw these pictures I wondered why you would have pix of Eva Longoria's wedding posted. Congratulations!

Cheryl said...
